My Journey: From Global Nomad
to Your English Empowerment Coach

Hello, I'm your bridge to mastering professional English, born from a life woven through the diverse tapestries of cultures and languages.  As an "Army BRAT"—a child of career military personnel—I've lived a life marked by frequent moves across continents, from the vibrant landscapes of California and Virginia to the historical depths of Germany, Korea, and Italy. This unique upbringing, immersed in varied cultures, sparked my passion for languages and understanding across borders, laying the foundation for my career in English coaching.

With a rich background working for leading multinational corporations and teaching at private academies, I realized my true calling was in directly empowering non-native English professionals. Holding a CELTA certification from the University of Cambridge and further qualifications from the British Council and pronunciation expert Mark Hancock, I've dedicated myself since 2012 to transforming English language learners into confident, proficient communicators.

In 2020, driven by a vision to offer more personalized and effective English learning experiences, I founded my online English coaching business. Drawing from the best teaching methodologies, I've crafted specialized programs aimed at accelerating your journey to professional fluency and career advancement.

My Values

I value clear and honest communication and enjoy making sense of the complexities and nuances of life.

I believe that every participation is worthy. Nurturing education and development is a top priority for me.

As an individual, maintaining good principals and ethical values without

compromising is essential. 

A person cannot experience or know everything. Listening to and respecting each other is essential to learning and living together.
